Title: Buy this book!
Content: The Ramayana is the great Hindu epic poem (kavya) by Valmiki, written about 500-300 BCE. But the story probably existed for centuries before it was composed by Valmiki, and enhanced by others subsequently. The Ramayana is older than the Mahabharata (which is considered the epic history - itihasa), and the two books are well known to most Hindus, at least in part. These books describe Hindu values and ethics (dharma) and I recommend all Hindus to read them and introduce them to their children. "Rama the Steadfast" (2006) by the great Sanskritist, Prof Brockington (and his wife), is a scholarly translation. Both authors are authorities on Hindu epics and I would recommend this book for general readers and specialist scholars alike. Being a translation of the critical edition, it leaves out Books 1 and 7. [I wish these had been included as Appendices, because the whole story is over 2000 years old, and most Hindus are sceptical about Western ideas of "ur" (the original) version.] I hope Penguin see fit to offer a competitively priced hardback version of this book soon, as they have already done for some of their other books. The Ramayana is a "holy book" and will be read and re-read, and this book is a true classic!

Title: Abridged
Content: I had a hard time finding out if this is an unabridged copy. It is not. In fact, it is their attempt at finding the "original" version within the oldest texts based on scholarly research into linguistics. Frankly, the whole attempt is dubious. Furthermore, this could have been accomplished with notes in an unabridged version. When will someone publish an affordable unabridged Ramayana? Minus one star for the poor communication, and minus a second star for bothering to publish something that is really only a speculation rather than the text as it has been received.
